The title: “What racquet do I use today?” is for two reasons: I have lots of racquets but I wanted to tell you what racquet I use the most.
Choosing a tennis racquet is not easy. I know many of you who follow my struggle with this, as do I. It’s one of the reasons, I started Tennisnerd a while back, to be able to document my journey and learnings around this often underestimated topic. I haven’t bought, traded, and sold racquets over the years to collect, I’ve done it because I like how much a racquet can affect your tennis, but also because of a desire to find the racquet that will work best for me. I keep coming back to several racquets over and over, but there is one racquet mainly that I use today.
I have written and talked about my customized Babolat Soft Drives before in my vlogs and posts on Tennisnerd, so we don’t go into depth about why I keep coming back to this racquet. Some players who try my setup understand straight away why I like it and some don’t. Racquets are a personal thing and you need to play with what works for you. Imitating other players won’t work, you need to find your own path. This is true for most things in life.
In this video, I also talk about some of the upcoming racquet reviews coming on this website and on YouTube. Such as the Wilson Six One 100 that I have just strung up and will take to the court for the first time today. I know many of you are curious about that racquet and I hope to be able to break down what makes that racquet great or not in an upcoming review.
I also have a few ProKennex racquets to play-test. The ProKennex Ki Q+5 Pro, which is a racquet that intrigued me after my recent ProKennex racquets review. My elbow is still not healed 100% so any chance of eliminating shock and improving comfort is a good idea. I will also be testing the ProKennex Ki Q+5X Pro, which is the extended version of the same racquet.
